I was supposed to go to Israel and all I got was cancer
Katelyn Pilley

I don’t think we’ve ever met, but I’m Lily’s college bff and have heard your name throughout the years and especially over the past few weeks. While I’ve only ever heard wonderful things, the courage that it took to write this post is awe-inspiring. You have been put in an incredibly difficult situation (that no one at any age, especially the age of 20, should have to go through), but are turning it into one of positivity and strength. That makes you extraordinary. Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts with the world- you have more people rooting for you than you realize. Now go kick cancer’s ass!
